Leicester City are to launch a move for prolific Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos in January as they look to add more attacking depth, according to a report.

Leicester City are reportedly set to launch a move for prolific Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos in January.

The Colombian international scored for Steven Gerrard's side in their win over Livingston at the weekend, taking his tally for the season to 22 goals in 26 games.

Since joining from HJK Helsinki in 2017, the forward known as "El Bufalo" has scored 70 goals in 117 appearances for the Ibrox club.

While his previous issues with indiscipline put off a few potential suitors, Morelos has been heavily linked with moves away from Rangers during the last two transfer windows.

A host of Chinese Super League clubs were thought to be interested in him in the summer, while Borussia Dortmund and Crystal Palace were among the other sides believed to be tracking him.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers is also known to be an admirer, and now talkSPORT reports that he wants to make an offer for his services in January as he looks to bolster his side's attacking depth.

Although Jamie Vardy is one of the Premier League's most deadly finishers, the Foxes have limited alternatives amid Kelechi Iheanacho's continued poor form and Shinji Okazaki's summer exit.
